Szimpla farmers’ market25
Operating since 2012
Operating since 2012 in one of the World’s most famous bars in Budapest, the Sunday market in Szimpla represents a new level in linking city and countryside: effective demand could meet quality offer in a controlled and organized manner for the first time after a long period.
Many of the farmers of Szimpla market were recruited during a 2-year field research in Nógrád County performed by the Sustainable Rural Development Course of ELTE Faculty of Human Ecology. In January 2014 Agri Kulti, the organizer and operator of the market handed the operation tasks to the Szimpla Ruin Bar.
Szimpla Farmers’ Market was awarded by Sozial Marie in 2013 as a unique social innovation.
